Trivia
* [[Kalos]] is the only region without a notable Ghost-type [[Type expert|specialist]].
* Every odd-numbered generation has introduced a female [[Elite Four]] member specializing in the Ghost-type.
* In [[Pokémon Conquest]], Ghost-type Pokémon which are not part-{{t|Flying}} or have {{a|Levitate}} are shown with an animation of physically passing through enemies, referencing the common belief that real -life ghosts can pass through solid objects. They cannot, however, pass through any other obstacle on the field in-game.
* Ghost and Dark are super effective against the same types. As of Generation VI, the only differences between them is that Dark-type moves are not very effective on Fighting or Fairy while Ghost-type moves do not affect Normal Pokémon.dr
* As shown in the {{pkmn|anime}}'s {{series|Sun & Moon}}, Ghost-type Pokémon, despite their name, have lifespans and can die. This was first mentioned in ''[[SM073|Why Not Give Me a Z-Ring Sometime?]]'', where [[Acerola]] revealed that her {{shiny}} {{p|Mimikyu}}, Mimikins, is in fact the ghost of a deceased Mimikyu. Later, in ''[[SM125|A Timeless Encounter!]]'', it is revealed that {{an|Professor Kukui}} had once befriended a {{pkmn2|Totem}} {{p|Trevenant}} that he [[nickname]]d Elder. It is later revealed that Elder had passed away sometime afterwards, its body now a regular tree.
* All Ghost-type moves are eligible to be used in [[Sky Battle]]s.
* The Ghost and Dragon types are the only typesones that are weak to their own element.
* The Ghost type is the only type of which {{Ash}} has yet to officially own at least one Pokémon in the anime.
